British Airways has been on a high recruitment drive for the past three years. This year with another expected 300 pilot intake. Capt. Dan Brownie and Capt. Chris Humphrey have between them got over 1500 pilots into British Airways and have in depth experience in this area. Capt. Chris Humphrey was also on the original selection process team and both know the important details that lead to effective preparation for BA. The check ride preparation  is tailored to the 747-400 or 757 simulator profile that you will be expected to fly on the day. We cover in-depth raw data handling, check lists, autopilot modes and the heavily weighted BA CRM element. This preparation is done in both roles PF / PNF. You can come as a pair and split training costs or we will team you up if possible as this is the most effective training for this simulator assessment practice.
